  1. Interesting thought - at $10 a share (Thursday close), a 100 share purchase costs $1000. One 14 day cruise earns you $250 in OBC - a 25% return. Lets hope that they keep this program going!
  2. I have a feeling that the crew will be kept busy with deep cleaning and other maintence items.
  3. Cancelled my April 18 and 25 cruises on Tuesday and credit card refund in my account on Thursday.
  4. A friend of mine on Royal Carb. this weekend was only offered a 100% cash refund OR 125% in FCC. I know its a different company, but it does make more sense than Holland offering 100 and 100.
  5. One thing that MIGHT help is business interruption insurance. I suspect that cruise lines have at least a limited amount of this.
  6. I suspect you are wrong - you should get the entire amount refunded (less perhaps a non-refundable deposit) IF you are on a normal fare. However, if you are on some sort of non-refundable fare, the situation could likely be different and you may only get back the port taxes and fees as cash and the rest on FCC. I think much of the confusion on this issue could be related to the various fare types the cruise lines are offering nowadays.
  7. I cancelled the same cruise on Tuesday. Was given a credit to our credit card of 50% of the base fare PLUS the taxes and fees. This posted to my credit card on Thursday. Then I also received a Future Cruise Credit for the other 50% of the base fare. This FCC must be booked by Dec 31, 2020 for a cruise prior to Dec 31, 2021. While I would rather have a full "cash" refund, I found this to be acceptable, especially since we cruise alot with HAL and already have two others booked. Is this what you were given/promised?
  8. With Princess cancelling all cruises for 2 months, and HAL likely to follow, I now wish I had waited to cancel my April cruise. That way we likely would have at least gotten all of our cash back (without FCC funds).
  9. To address a comment mentioned a couple of times - when we cancelled our April cruise, we got the $100 from our future cruise deposit, but lost the ability to reuse it (the FCD). So, the OBC we got with it is gone as well.
  10. I cancelled yesterday and was in the 50% penalty phase. I received a credit card refund for 50% of the base fare PLUS the port fees and taxes. The rest of the amount I have paid was put into the FCC funds to be used on a future cruise. I was not able to apply these funds to an existing reservation, as I was told that it will take up to 2 weeks to process everything. I am not sure that everyone at HAL is on the same page on this new program.
  11. Well, American came through for me and allowed me to rebook a domestic US flight in June and even gave me a refund of $25 pp (I think it was tax related but not sure). THANKS AMERICAN!
  12. While that is great, the flight I have an issue with is at the end of our April cruise and departs on MAY 2!!
  13. I think the question is - if you apply the FCC to a booking (either new or existing) and later then cancel that one, can the FCC be reapplied to another cruise (or do you lose it). I have the same question.
  14. All I am looking for is what, if anything, people have recently gotten from the airlines regarding cancellations due to the virus situation. There have been some information so far, like cruisemom2, that somewhat applies.
